Guide Description

The usual image that tourists have of Rio is of the white sandy beaches and luxurious apartments at Copacabana and Ipanema. This tour reveals the area where the city originated after the arrival of the Portuguese colonizers in the 16th century. Rio would become the capital of a thriving new colony and later the seat of a vast commercial empire with links to 4 other continents. The most important historical buildings and their cultural heritage have been preserved in excellent condition, allowing the visitor to obtain an accurate description of Brasils past.
